Choose Gaia Naturelle natural cosmetics
Natural cosmetics are increasingly sought after nowadays because we care about what we put on our skin. Not only have we started to take more care of our health and therefore be more careful with our food choices, but we are also more careful when it comes to cosmetics.
What is the difference between natural and conventional cosmetics?
Natural cosmetics are made from mainly natural ingredients and contain little or no synthetic substances. The main stars of natural cosmetics are plant extracts, hydrolats, butter, and oils, and scented essential oils are most commonly used to fragrance natural cosmetics.
On the other hand, there are conventional cosmetics, where, although there are many more compounds available, conventional cosmetics can contain a significant amount of irritants. Various chemicals irritate the skin, but most often too high a percentage of alcohol and perfumes. In addition, conventional cosmetics also have a negative impact on the environment.

Does the Natural Cosmetics Certification guarantee that cosmetics are natural?
No. European cosmetics legislation does not define a single definition for natural cosmetics.
No certification guarantees that a cosmetic is 100% natural, but only that a certain percentage of the ingredients are natural.
Gaia Naturelle cosmetic products are no longer certified as natural cosmetics because we believe that our customers are educated enough to know from the ingredients that they are indeed natural cosmetics. We recommend that you check the ingredients of the product you are buying rather than whether it is certified as a natural cosmetic. This is because natural cosmetics certification can be granted or purchased even for products that contain only a low percentage of natural ingredients.
Ingredients in natural cosmetics
The ingredients in natural cosmetics are most often natural butter and oils, essential oils, vitamins, and certain other active ingredients.
Jojoba oil - the chemical composition of jojoba oil is very similar to the skin's natural sebum, so it is easily absorbed and nourishes even the deeper layers of the skin. It is effective in inhibiting the appearance of wrinkles, regulating moisture, and maintaining skin elasticity. Jojoba oil is suitable for all skin types but is particularly suitable for sensitive and problematic (acne-prone) skin.
Shea butter - rich in fatty acids, provitamin A, vitamins E and F, and a small proportion of allantoin, is the ideal composition for the care of dry and mature skin. After just a few days, the skin is softer and more delicate.
Helichrysum italicum hydrolate - is excellent for mature skin. Helichrysum italicum hydrolate renews the skin and also stimulates collagen production. It is also excellent for problem skin as it has a soothing effect and promotes skin regeneration.
Coconut oil - Coconut organic, cold-pressed butter (oil) is a real balm for the skin. It is rich in vitamins A, B, and E, which moisturize and nourish the skin. Coconut oil protects the skin against the formation of free radicals. Thanks to its exceptional absorption deep into the skin, it strengthens and rejuvenates the skin.
The scent of natural cosmetics
The fragrance of natural cosmetics is usually scented with extracts from real plants, including hydrolats and essential oils. The smell of natural cosmetics is, of course, different from conventional cosmetics, but we can assure you that after using natural cosmetics for a long period of time, you will find it difficult to apply strong-smelling "ordinary cosmetics" to your skin.
However, even when using natural cosmetics, caution should be exercised. A fairly high percentage of people react with allergic reactions to fragrances and essential oils. All Gaia Naturelle natural cosmetics contain a delicate natural almond fragrance and the lip balms are scented with essential oils.
Gaia Naturelle Natural Cosmetics
I used my knowledge and experience of different ingredients to develop my first cosmetics, which I initially used for myself, but after a while, I also offered them to my friends. Thanks to the positive response to the products, the hobby soon turned into a business. I no longer create the cosmetics myself, we only have ideas about the ingredients, and we have outsourced the production to two Slovenian companies with GMP-certified production.
